Easy Lace Embellishment on a Plain T-Shirt

Easy Lace Back T-shirt

First of all, do you know how hard it is to take a picture of your backside?? I looked at so many pictures and though, do I really look like that from behind?! Anyway, this was the best I got.

This is a super simple sewing project. If you can sew a straight line, you can do this. Even if you sew a crooked line, you can still do this!


I started off with a plain t-shirt from Old Navy. They were having a buy one get one free sale so if I screwed it up I wouldn’t feel nearly as bad. The lace came from my sponsor WholePort.


The first thing I did was cut the length of the lace. I made sure that it overlapped the hem on the underside of the shirt. I did this for the top and bottom.


Since the lace I had was kind of one sided, I decided to layer it. I overlapped the two straight sides and pinned it in place.


You can see it all pinned here. I also went back and pinned the outer edges.


Now sew down the middle. You will also sew down the outer edges (right and left side) so that you do have lace wings.


I then sewed along the hem on the top and bottom.
